Rap never changed..
Your telling me Magic Stick - 50 Cent was really about a magical wand?
Or Candy Shop was actually about candy..
Snoop Dogg, Missy elliot.
Bullshit and Party - Bigge Smalls?
Freek A Leek- Petey Pablo?
It was always like this, and if it wasn't about sex, then it was about gangs. East side/West side "conflict".
Or money.
I listed artists that people have generally heard of
(Not bashing on the above artists, I love them, I did not include eminem because I don't really like his style)
Anyways, rap has never changed. I think it's just some poor excuse parents like to make up so they can blame whatever's "wrong"(Smoking weed, having sex, getting pregnant) with their child on some song.


Of course these songs were about "bad" things but the way the way the scenes are portraid are different now. Instead of making a clever way to depict something now its straightforward. those are the things i look forward to in songs
for example ( even though you dont like eminem) in his song 25 to life Eminem spends most of the song talking about what the audience thinks is a woman and at the end he says hes divorcing RAP which means during the whole song hes been talking about the rap game instead of degrading a woman. But this is just my opinion


I agree, using analogies and other literary devices are what hook people in.
But again, when have you heard that song on the radio (Correct me if I'm wrong, I don't want to talk nonsense razz ). Artist supply what the people want, some, like eminem, don't care and rap from feeling. If people want to hear Lil wayne talk about weed, coke, and money, then that is what you will typically hear on the radio.

yeah and thats true they usually dont (at least from what i heard) dont really have eminem on the radio
thats what i was getting at, the analogies and even simple clever changes in the song arent what people look for now they just want to hear all the things that "hood life" represents

In the words of David Alan Grier "When did 'Fight the Power' become 'Wait Until You See My d**k'?"

Anyone hear about some new rapper called Chief Keef? There was some kind of crazy fiasco where he was a gang member and they killed someone and at the guys funeral a few more gang members retaliated and shot more people up. Big problem with that. Rap is already looked upon by many as the poison of the young society. I personally don't listen to a lot of rap but I do like some. But anyway, these people were from Chicago just like Kanye West and right now, people are saying Kanye is going down the toilet which I can kind of agree with. I prefer the old Kanye but maybe I'm just getting old.

For some strange reason, all the negatives of rap (New Kanye West Singles, Lil Wayne, Nikki Minaj) are the only things that people see and listen to. But there are definitely still some decent rappers out there. I happen to like Lupe Fiasco, Eminem is still doing good, and a lot of rappers from Nujabes are good.

Sorry if I kind of strayed away from the topic. I didn't mean to.
